Red Beet Crystals: Simple Snacks Super Benefits
Beets are not the first food to come to mind when it comes to a simple snack, probably not even the first veggie you think of, but our Red Beet Crystals are any easy way to get the super benefits from this superfood without much fuss.
Crafted from the juice of freshly harvested organic beets, these superfood crystals provide an easy way to bring all the benefits of beets to quick bites, full meals, and drinks alike. (For example, they can make a smoothie bowl pop each morning or give a salad a bit of bonus benefit.) They are instantly soluble and lend a hint of natural sweetness when mixed into the recipe of your choice. Plus, they’re vegan, non-GMO, and Certified Organic so you can feel good about adding them to anything and everything!
Red Beet Frozen Yogurt Bark
A simple combination of a high-quality yogurt, honey, and Salus Red Beet Crystals create a beautiful vibrant hot pink, kid (and everyone)-friendly dessert on a warm day. This recipe creates a fantastic base for you to have some extra fun with different toppings to provide extra protein and flavor.
- 2 quarts of whole milk plain yogurt or Greek Yogurt
- 2 tbsp Red Beet Crystals
- 1/4 cup of honey or maple syrup
- 2 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
- Lemon squeeze (optional)
- 1/4 cup heavy cream (optional, for extra creamy frozen yogurt)
- Toppings of your choice (A few ideas: chopped pistachios, strawberries, blueberries, coconut chunks, chocolate chips, Salus Red Beet Crystals as sprinkles, get creative!)
- Chop all toppings you want to add to your recipe and set aside.
- Add yogurt, Red Beet Crystals, honey and other optional ingredients as desired to a large bowl and stir well until honey is evenly distributed and the Red Beet Crystals have dissolved. (You could also use a food processor or mixer.)
- Line a baking pan with parchment paper. (If you prefer a thicker bark a 9x9 inch pan would also work well.)
- Carefully pour the yogurt mixture onto the pan and spread evenly across.
- Add your toppings, you can mix them in or leave them to sit on top of the yogurt.
- Place in the freezer, remember to keep the pan level and freeze for at least 6 hours.
- Remove from the freezer and cut with a knife or break pieces apart with your hands.
- Use some extra Salus Red Beet Crystals and sprinkled on top without mixing in to create specks or a sprinkle design for the frozen yogurt bark.
- Pour the yogurt mixture into a bread pan and serve with an ice cream scoop or pour into muffin tins for individual servings.
- A few of our favorite toppings: Fresh chopped fruit, nuts, coconut flakes, honey drizzle, white chocolate, chocolate sauce, and edible flowers.
